Cosmo and Dingo sit around on the big green couch at home and play some music by the ladies and talk of Poems and Prayers and Promises.
Dingo and Cosmo set the scene by talking about Ladyfest, the International women-based music festival phenomena originating in Olympia.
Dingo, (who remembers dates, especially birthdays, very well, reminds Cosmo that it’s Flag Day in the U.S., and wishes a happy birthday to our old friend Knute Knutson, (who is now living in Arizona), and Kirsten, her “niece.”
Then we talked about our trip the first week of the month to Ocean Shores, Washington – (Map Link), The long sandspit beach resort community on the Washington Coast and sheltering Grays Harbor. Dingo mentions that the Galway Bay is the finest Irish pub within 100 miles.
After that, Cosmo reads the Lyrics to John Denver’s Poems, Prayers and Promises, which he takes great inspiration from, and about which Dingo makes an eloquent comment.
